Hollywood stars Joshua Jackson and Lupita Nyong’o seem to be taking extra precautions to keep their rumored romance under wraps, as evidenced by their recent joint grocery run at Erewhon in Los Angeles.
Despite their efforts to avoid being photographed together, the Oscar-winning actress was spotted in the passenger’s seat as they arrived.
The secrecy surrounding their outing didn’t end there. Lupita made a valiant attempt to stay out of view, but eagle-eyed observers managed to catch a glimpse of her.
Joshua, on the other hand, maintained the appearance of a solo excursion, entering the store first, with Lupita following a few minutes later.
Although neither actor has officially confirmed their relationship, their discreet behavior during this grocery run and recent joint activities suggest a connection that goes beyond mere friendship.
The two celebrities have a history, having known each other for years, but their relationship appears to have gained momentum in October, notably during Janelle Monáe’s concert.
While there was no overt public display of affection at the event, the timing is intriguing. Lupita Nyong’o had just ended her relationship with boyfriend Sal Masekela earlier that day, taking the swift step of removing all traces of him from her Instagram.
Coincidentally, a week before this joint outing with Lupita, TMZ had already reported that Joshua Jackson’s marriage to actress/model Jodie Turner-Smith had come to an end after four years.
The Hollywood duo’s attempt to keep their connection low-key only fuels speculation about the nature of their relationship.
